Philosophical Concept of Halal Science: Thematic Exegesis Research
Philosophy of science in general is divided into three types, which is natural science, social sciences and applied sciences. In fact there are also Islamic scholars who place the science of tauhid as the main factor for avoiding the modern science’s thought such as saintism, rationalism and empiricism and that can effect the philosophy of Islamic science. This includes the field of halal science which is a branch of philosophy of Islamic science. Furthermore, the impacts of science and technology on the theory and application of halal science has led to some polemics in the community including genetically modified food (GMF), biotechnology risk in plants, halal slaughtering using machines, wool or lecithin based on animal or human resources, the use of elements pigs and derivatives in various products, alcohol (alcohol and ethanol) in food and more. Hence, research on philosophy of halal science is important. Therefore, this article has three objectives. First, identify the philosophy of halal science. Second; analyze the verses of the Qur'an on the philosophy of halal science and the third; to build the philosophy of halal science based on the Qur'an which is the main source and remains relevant. This literature study found that there are three important elements that must exist in the philosophy of halal science namely tauhid as the main support, wahyu as a reference source and third role and values of humankind in the philosophy of Islamic science in managing and using halal science products.
